Ideas, Thoughts??

I'm wanting to build a small elec glider and wanted to get some sugguestions from you guys.

First I don't want a ARF or a kit, I want to build from plans.

Wingspan 40" to 72"??
Motor, one of the Speed 400's or prefered one of the EPS-350 types.
Batteries 2 cell 700 or 1200 Li-polies. Thoughts on this?
Pico Servo's to save weight

Construction balsa wood open to ideas here.

I just want something to fly and maybe catch a few thermos, does not have to be hi-performance.

So like you fellows have any ideas?

Thanks
CrashinJ

Ask in the thermal formum. Those guys appear to be far more into building.

Another possibility would be to motorize a DJAerotech Chrysalis:
